Jets ornerback Darrelle Revis had high praise for Tim Tebow today according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.
"He's a born leader, he really is," Revis said Wednesday. "Very few athletes have the gift he has. He tries to lead by example all the time. He tries to be positive, which is awesome, and that (has resulted) in his success on the field."
Asked to define Tebow's leadership, Revis smiled.
"I wish I was God, I'm not," he said. "I don't know. Some people have it, some guys don't. It's the passion within, wanting to be a leader, wanting to win. You see it all the time, eating lunch, walking down the hallway.
You see it.
"He's like that cartoon character Zeus (sic). He's one of those guys. He's very positive. He has passion for whatever he does. You can see it on him."
"He's a playmaker, he makes plays, he wins games," Revis said. "Having him as a teammate is kind of different because you actually get to see him every day. You get to talk to him every day, you get to eat lunch with him. You get to know him as a person. It's totally different."
